The Challenge

Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) allows users to work from anywhere with enhanced collaboration, however, it also opens up information systems to a new set of weaknesses and vulnerabilities, unless the right security controls are enabled.

The increased exposure of personal and company data outside the organisation’s firewall has made Microsoft 365 an even bigger target for criminals. This presents unique challenges in maintaining compliance with data protection regulations and protecting sensitive and critical data.

Misconfigurations, inappropriate user access levels and missing security controls all lead to vulnerabilities that could potentially give attackers access to sensitive data and make us a target for Ransomware infections.

Findings from a Microsoft 365 Security Assessment can help protect sensitive staff and 3rd party data and lessen the risk of data breaches.

The Service

As Microsoft 365 environments provide email and document sharing activities, there is a significant amount of sensitive and personal data that could be at risk if not appropriately protected.

Microsoft 365 can be very secure if the available security controls are applied. By default, many controls are not applied and it is up to each organisation to perform that function themselves, based on their individual needs.

The purpose of this service is to assess how the Microsoft 365 tenancy is currently configured and managed and provide recommendations on how to implement the most appropriate M365 security features.

We review the current configuration and check control settings, such as whether the appropriate controls are just enabled rather than enforced. Applying the resulting recommendations will improve security and reduce the risk of suffering a breach.

This report will outline the key issues that BH Consulting have identified from the assessment with suggested actions to manage those issues.

The Benefits

  • Minimise and mitigate the risk of critical data being leaked from your M365 environment
  • Reduce the risk of succumbing to phishing attacks
  • Ensure high risk accounts with admin rights are adequately protected
  • Enhance security, ensuring users are authorised and only have access to the resources and information they need, and for the minimum time required
  • Provide insights to your overall information security posture
